World Shibori Network

Celebrating the visual languages of PEOPLE, COMMUNITY, CULTURE, and ENVIRONMENT through the global practice of resist-dye traditions and innovations, keeping in mind authenticity, reciprocity, and networking.


WSN organizes a number of events throughout the year. Our signature event – the International Shibori Symposium – is produced every few years. In addition, WSN supports and promotes many other textile conferences, exhibitions and lectures produced by fellow organizations and cultural institutions.
